If you're looking for a nice, easy read and you're interested in fashion and modeling, this may be a good book for you. It's a pretty fast read, and I finished it in about a day and a half!
Violet Greenfield has lived her whole life as a wallflower, so when a glamorous modeling agent discovers her and tells her she could be the next big thing, Violet travels to New York and is swept away in a world of snobby models, expensive clothes, heartbreaking boys, and the press.
The plot is pretty good, even though it isn't too original. The writing at times seem kind of simple, but the quirky humor is entertaining and good for a day when you don't feel like reading anything very difficult.
Also, if you're interested in the modeling industry and fashion, you'll enjoy the references made to Chanel and Prada.
All in all, I give the book a 5/10.
